Ullink Continues Focus on Ultra Low Latency With Azul Zing Partnership

Ullink is continuing its focus on squeezing microseconds of latency from its trade execution and pre-trade risk systems, by partnering with Azul Systems, which offers a low and predictable latency Java virtual machine (JVM).

Laurent Useldinger, CEO of Ullink, comments: “We have been testing the capabilities of the Azul solution for sometime; during that period we have seen a definite and significant improvement in the consistency of message delivery across our global routing network.”

Azul’s Zing JVM is 100% compatible with the standard distribution but is optimised for the Linux operating system, reducing latency and jitter that is often associated with the standard JVM. Applications – such as Ullink’s trading system suite – that are written in Java require a JVM to execute on host operating system and hardware platforms.

Last year, Ullink partnered with Fiberblaze to incorporate FPGA technology into its pre-trade risk components, reducing their processing latency to just two microseconds.
